Description

Yoosun D is a nice mix of face and crack climbing on the west face of Yoosun-Dae.

P1(5.6, 15m) Locate a bolted anchor above a low angle slab with marginal protection.
P2(5.10a, 40m) A long face climb on sharp edges.
P3(5.10c, 35m) The steep upper crack section requires a few liebacking moves.
P4(5.10a, 25m) This crack is overly bolted.
P5(5.8, 25m) A low angle slab.

After P5, the route joins the "Longing for two" ridge.
You can continue up the ridge to the top of Yoosun-dae, or rappel to the base via "Two sixty thousand" on skier's right with a single 70m rope. A single 60m rope will require a short down climb on the last rappel.

Protection

12 quickdraws, single rack 0.3 to 3
